Unhappy Water pump question

Hello everyone
This really is an aquarium equipment question but if anyone has advice I'd be happy!
I have an aqva stabil tank with a trickle filter. The current is quite strong and it affects plant growth.
I know I can turn down the pump but I don't know how
I reach down at the back of the tank an I'm scared I'm going to wreck something.
The brand is German so I look in the Internet and there's not much information
I went to the shop where I bought the tank and they showed me but when I got home I noticed that my tank was quite different to what I was shown

Welcome to APC! I can't answer your question, but I've moved your thread to the equipment forum where it should get more attention.

Most, if not all aquarium pumps are similar in that they use a rotor to move the water. They don't generate much pressure, just water flow. That type of pump is not harmed by putting a valve in the output line, and restricting the flow that way. A valve in the input line does harm the pump by causing cavitation. But, I know nothing about that brand, so it may not be a typical aquarium pump.
